Homegrown Preschool - Lesli Richards, Part 2

Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!

Oct 7 2020 • 30 mins

Yvette Hampton is back with Lesli Richards, homeschooling mother of five and author of The Homegrown Preschooler. One of the most common stressors for parents is trying to meet all their children’s needs at once. Join us for an engaging conversation that will help you learn how to survive schooling multiple children while enriching your family culture.  From scheduling to home organization, Lesli gives parents the confidence that they need to provide a rich early education for their little ones and nurture your preschooler’s mind and soul through play in order to prepare a firm foundation for the delights and demands of home education. If you have children ages 7 and under, this is one you won’t want to miss!
